How on Earth can a Godly person convince themselves that it meshes with their morals to support this absolutely Godless Republican caucus?
You’re thinking “TRUMP! Republicans? Haven’t you been watching the news?
The answer to that is “YES! For the past 20 years, I’ve been watching the Republican Party devolve into the dumpster fire D-list carnival looking for a PT Barnum to be its cartoon clown leader. Together they are one. Neither less dangerous or less traitorous than the other.
Both working as one to keep their voter base ignorant and drunk on hate. Ironic that this base is made up of “Evangelical Christians.”
Sickening that they spend hundreds of millions of dollars conning them numb. I used to have to monitor and interact with members of the most extremist right in a know thine enemy kind of way. I still get a lot of their propaganda PR in one of my inboxes. It won’t surprise you that a unifying theme of their garbage bastardizes the Christian faith and uses this version to keep Evangelicals in their pocket.
This sample comes from a seemingly endless collection of blogs (this one, comically called “Welcome to my Blog.”) These Russian bot-produced and distributed blogs post 2-3 mini-stories / day mixing politics and religion. They write softly of extremist subjects and pepper them with ones about Dominionist Christian occultism. It’s a campaign to normalize dark, anti-American policies. This campaign enlists wayward Christians into ridiculously marching like zombies in defense of their own imprisonment.
The Evangelical base is key to the right being able to have any chance whatsoever of surviving the blue tsunami about to descend upon America. As Historian Nancy MacLean laid out on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, this coup of our nation and Western Civilization isn’t a new phenomena.
Not by a long shot. The details are in playbooks that have been developed, published, and wildly shared amongst the fringe of the “Grand ol’ Party” for years.
Like those deplorable “President Obama in a noose” email forwards your uncle Bubba sent everyone, this has been very real for years. It was just held back by the weight of its own insanity. You can see it now, because this vile Republican caucus has an equally insane gnome-king to enact all of their dark plans.
